Force Majeure


Director:Ruben Östlund

country:Sweden, France, Norway, Denmark

Run time:120'


A Swedish family decides to take a holiday in the French Alps. They are certain they will be able to enjoy a pleasant ski season in peace. At their destination, the days are beautiful and sunny. Everything seems in perfect balance. Then an avalanche at a mountainside restaurant challenges their lives and eventually the role of the family patriarch. Despite everyone leaving completely unscathed, it is Mother Ebba who stays to protect her children, while her husband, Tomas, is concerned only with saving himself. The possible disaster did not occur, but the world family’s world is utterly shaken. Force Majeure, by Swedish director Ruben Östlund, is not an ordinary film about natural disasters.
